Events and History in the month of March

Historical Facts & Events In March

march : Historical Events

It was initially a unanimous decision to make March the first month of the year. It has been named after Mars, the God of War and the son of Juno and Jupiter. He has been described as a chivalrous and hot-headed deity. He is known for his battle against the giants as well his significant role in the Trojan War.

The month was named after Mars since the weather is as Charles Dickens observed, “It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade”.
